Sunday evening was another sad day after fire mysteriously burnt St. John’s clinic, and other items in Kabango East cell Kabango Town Council Bujenje County in Masindi District.
The cause of fire outbreak is yet unclear but police is investigating into the matter. The area chairperson Mr. Balibuga Sapline confirmed the incident, and said when he reached at the scene, he contacted the fire brigade team in Kabango and Masindi Police Station.
According to Mr. Mustapher Eneku eye witness, fire broke out at around 7pm from behind in the bedroom burning beds, mattresses, fridges, ceiling and others. He also explained that by the time police arrived at the scene, residents had already rescued some of the drugs in the clinic and extinguished the fire.
Ms. Grace Achandi another eye also narrates that the owners of the clinics (names withheld) collapsed on seeing fire, she however never disclosed whether they were rushed to the hospital or not. She also noted this had taken years without happening in their area.
In an effort to get a comment from the Masindi District Police Commander Mr. Vincent Irama was futile by the time we filed this story because his known mobile numbers were not reachable.
